Pure Purple Pleasure

I made one of my best ever breakfasts this morning with just 3 ingredients.

3 things in a blender Cashew nuts, frozen blueberries and a fresh banana.purple breakfast 2 I added no liquid so it remained thick.  Very thick, with small nuggets of cashews, which I had soaked the previous night.  By the time I got to work it was still very cold but not frozen at all.  I LOVED it!purple breakfast 1 I had it with a chopped up sweet and juicy orange.  Oooh yeah, that was taste heaven.oranges on purple I managed to make lunch again too.  Half a large red pepper, a large red tomato, 1 carrot and some more hemp seed humous.veggies and humous in pot Topped with loads of lamb’s lettuce.topped with lamb's lettuce Before eating lunch I went for a wander round the market and Turnip was open and they had trays of Alphonso mangoes which I adore.  At 4 for £5 I bought 4 🙂box of alphonso mango and cherries Turnip, Borough Market I also went to the Turkish cafe, TAS, and bought some of their falafel and humous, both of which are the very best I have ever had.  salad and humous The falafel is really crunchy and the humous is unbelievably smooth.falafel and humous When I got home the jar of broccoli seeds I was sprouting had gone mouldy which is a shame as they were about ready to eat.  I will have to try again.broccoli seeds mouldy I was still quite full up from lunch as that was a large serving of humous.  So I had a very light supper starring the lovely mango.Alphonso mango again Everything about these is wonderful.  The creamy flesh, the stunning colour, the irresistibly sweet smell and the heavenly taste.Alphonso mango 15-5-13 I ate them with some pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, raisins and cool creamy natural yogurt.mango, yog and nuts I could eat that lot again, it was wonderful.mango, yogurt and nuts

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
